DUMBS, THE: Glue Sniffers: CD

The Dumbs from Warsaw usually function as a Ramones cover band. However this CD contains fifteen Ramones-inspired originals. These guys are nothing if not committed. The CD artwork is a parody of the artwork for Acid Eaters. The songs are short bursts of teenage angst. The band has a feel for Ramones production, humor, and song structure. There is no Joey element to the singing; the vocals are raspy to snotty. Still, you know what’s going on here. If you are always ready to commiserate about the Ramones, you will like this.
